Abstract

The purpose of this study was to determine the difference in isokinetic strength of lower limb muscle between elite and advance high jumper. MERAC system was employed to measure the peak torque of hip, knee and ankle extensor and flexors at 60°/sec and 240°/sec testing velocity. There were significant different between groups in isokinetic performance. These differences provide the information for the coach to design muscular strength training protocol for high jumper.
